Red Tape – Have your say!

30 April 2014

Red Tape – Have your say!

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment have launched a comprehensive Review of Business Red Tape in Northern Ireland. The Review will look for ways to reduce the regulatory burden on local businesses.

The Minister, Arlene Foster, and indeed the Executive, wants to ensure that Northern Ireland businesses can focus on selling more products, making their operations more efficient and employing more people. The Review will provide the local business community with an excellent opportunity to have their say on the regulations that are perhaps overly burdensome or could be improved.

The DETI Review team want to hear from you on your experience of regulation in Northern Ireland; Do you face too many inspections? Is guidance unclear or misleading? Are there regulations that are obsolete, and could be scrapped or merged with others? DETI want to hear about this and any other suggestions on how to cut unnecessary red tape in NI to allow your business get on with growing, finding new markets and creating more jobs.

Further information can be found at or you can contact the team directly at and on 028 9052 9372.
